Oh, pick me, pick me. I know. (Lol!)

1) Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integrated_circuit

2) The Southbridge chip of the motherboard chipset, handles the USB bus, and PCI bus.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Motherboard_diagram.svg

The Low Pin Count Bus goes from the Southbridge chip, to the Super I/O chip.
The Super I/O chip handles the Keyboard and Mouse.

The motherboard chipset for the ECS P4M800 Pro-M is a
VIA P4M800 - Northbridge chip, and a
VIA VT8237R+ - Southbridge chip.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_VIA_chipsets#AMD_.2F_Intel_processors

[The Northbridge chip is under that aluminum finned Heatsink, close to the Processor.
The Southbridge chip is to the right of the white long PCI slots.
Green square circuit board, with VIA in the middle of a silvery circle ]

Does the VIA southbridge chip looked burned, or bubbled?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Super_I/O

Which one is the Super I/O chip? Don't know. I think it may be that ITE chip to the left of the VIA southbridge chip. (VT8237R+)

http://web.archive.org/web/20070929033214/http://www.esupport.com/techsupport/award/superio.htm

Does it look burned, or bubbled?

Look at the Electrolytic Capacitors on the motherboard.
(Radial Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitors, to be more specific)

Some of these are used in the motherboard voltage regulator circuit.
SOME are for regulating voltage for the I/O bus, and USB bus.

(No, not referring to the solid Polymer capacitors surrounding the Processor socket)

Look for other burned SMD's on the motherboard.

1. function of bios chip 2. function of north and south bridge chipset 3. cpu function


Hi there. Here is a brief description of those components found on the motherboard.

1. BIOS chip: This is known as Basic Input Output System and the chip contains the base instructions on how to boot the PC. All personalized settings can be configured in the BIOS such as CPU overclocking.

2. North Bridge: This component works with high speed hardware components such as RAM and PCI-E cards.

3.South Bridge: This component works with slower speed hardware components such as the hard drive and USB.

4. CPU: Central Processing Unit, this is basically the brain of a computer and this component is the one that does all calculating of data. So when you run an application, the CPU processes the data involving the application.

Please rate and comment, thank you.

I need drivers for the matsonic ms8167c motherboard.


Matsonic not provide support for their motherboards. Try to use "3DP Chip Software" to identify, download and install the appropriate drivers with your motherboard.
You ca download the application on this page:

Download and run it.


If I could be offurther assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rateit and give a testimonial for my response.

Can i get sound drivers for intel 865 for windows 7


You will need to find whose sound chip is used (probably Intel) and you can get this info and tons more with Belarc Advisor, a free utility will give you a detailed description of every piece of hard- and software on your system, along with installed 'fixes.'
Once you know which company produced the chip for specific functions, you can find their website and get needed drivers.

How couid i know the my motherbord number?And how could get the driver also becouse i lost my mother board CD?


The drivers can be obtained through the manufacturer's website. As far as the serial number, it should be stamped somewhere on the board or on a sticker affixed to the board.

VGA Drivers for Mercury p4vm800m7


Hi,

If it, the video adapter, is a standard type of intel chip, you can usually find drivers on the intel site.

Beyond that, you may first need to identify the video chip on your motherboard and then go from there....

Server continously beeps 5/6 times over and over againcan anyone identify with the problemcheers


Hi, this type of error alert is most often related to RAM chip failure.
If you have more than one chip, swap them around or try to boot using 1st one chip then the other to identify the faulty one.
Replace this and all will be ok.

Motherboard


This is kind of a tough one, so I'll give you what I can. Open the case and locate the largest board ( the motherboard) and painted on the motherboard (with usually white lettering paint) there should be the name of the manufacturer. Some of the majors are Asus, Intel, Biostar, Abit, Foxconn, Gigabyte, evga just to name a few. There should be a model number painted somewhere on the board in smaller lettering as well. If not paint, look for a thin somewhat long sticker towards the perimeter of the board which contains a model number and a serial number. If you can find a model number but no vendor name, do a google search on the model number and the name might pop-up. If this doesn't get you anywhere, your next step is to identify the sound chip itself. This isn't as daunting as it sounds, but will take a bit of time. To identify the sound chip look on the motherboard, and write down the information on each chip. You don't need to write down any information for chips that have heat sinks (like the processor, graphics, sometimes the bridge chips) will only leave a few. Then do a google search one by one until you hit on one that is a sound chip. Then do a google search for drivers for that chip. Hope this gets you started.
